Art is said to reflect the society creating it, which is why it’s so important. The city of Fishers is home to many talented artists, performers and entertainers. The Fishers Arts Council and Fishers Parks and Recreation are presenting the fifth annual Fishers Arts Crawl Sept. 14 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Nickel Plate District.
“This one is a little bit different from the other crawls that we’ve done because it is a fifth-anniversary celebration,” said Marissa Deckert, assistant director of Fishers Parks & Recreation. “Guests will still see several artists and performers throughout the Nickel Plate District businesses, but there will also be artists out at the amphitheater area. We’ll have performances on our stage, too.”
Businesses in the Nickel Plate District will offer exclusive promotions throughout the evening.
“We hope to be displaying some art in some of the local businesses, too, in more of a passive way to engage with this event throughout the week,” Deckert said.
The event will have something for the entire family.
“Kids will enjoy posing and taking photos with the ‘White River Monster’ sculpture,” said Tom Rich, vice president of Fishers Arts Council. “It’s really fun for Instagram photos.”
Guests will have the opportunity to participate in art creation.
“We have an artist who does what he calls scribble conversion,” Deckert said. “Somebody will come up and make a little scribble line, and he will transform that into something else.”
All participating artists are from the surrounding area.
“We gave priority to Fishers residents, and most of our performers and artists are from Fishers or Hamilton County,” Rich said. “We have a few from the Indianapolis area.”
Admission is free. Parking is available and a complimentary event shuttle will be provided. For more, visit playfishers.com/184/Arts-Crawl.
